Bill O’Reilly May Be Headed Back to Cable News as Part of a Star-Studded Lineup

Bill O’Reilly is in talks to return to cable news, with his sights set on his old 8 p.m. slot. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that O’Reilly is working on a deal with Newsmax TV.

“A year after O’Reilly’s abrupt exit from Fox News, where he was the top-rated host in cable news, the controversial anchor — who was forced out after the disclosure of sexual-harassment allegations and settlements paid to alleged victims — is in advanced discussions with Newsmax about developing a new show, we’re told,” the publication reports.

The report adds: “Newsmax is also chasing other former Fox News talent — Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling have been approached to join as hosts of hourlong shows in prime time. Bolling already has a deal with CRTV for a digital show.”

The Post reports that former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is also on track to land at Newsmax with a political late-night panel show.

The report quotes an insider saying: “The deals are not done yet, but talks are in the advanced stages, certainly with O’Reilly. The thinking is, following a 6 p.m. news show, Greta would anchor the 7 p.m. hour, O’Reilly would be back at 8 p.m., and Bolling could smoothly continue on at 9 p.m. Spicer and his cohorts would go on at 10 p.m., with the later slot allowing the show to be looser. But the deals are not yet signed and sealed.”

  1. Newsmax should change their name to the Sexual Harassment Network. Will they also add a Bill Cosby sitcom? How about a new Kevin Spacey Detective Drama?
